Your Child Is in Great Hands
Behind the scenes Juana Cruz (administrator and co-owner) and Sujeidi Henriquez (Provider and co-owner) are two women with a common goal, to help families transition from raising their child(ren) in the home, to attending their very first preschool. Juana Cruz believed her family would benefit from a preschool environment, where her youngest of five would excel in academics at an early age. Sujeidi Henriquez transitioned from working abroad to working in New York and found it to be so different yet very much the same. She learned that the large percentage of educators , providers, and even parents, want the same for their little ones. They want their child(ren) to grow in a safe and secure environment, while preparing them for the future. Together, Juana and Sujeidi made the life changing decision to start a home daycare business.

Meet the provider
Hello my name is Sujeidi Henriquez, co-owner and provider at Sue’s Prep Group Family Daycare in New Rochelle, NY. I have been educating children for over five years. I am a graduate of the State University of New York at Cobleskill, where I obtained an Associate of Applied Science in Child and Family Services and acquired a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. My passion for Early Childhood Education has taken me abroad to Countries such as Malawi, Africa and Quito, Ecuador. During my experience abroad, I learned from some of the kindest teachers, providers and community members. Traveling to these places introduced me to new skills and a deeper passion for working with children and families, from a range of cultures and backgrounds.
Meet the Administrator
Hello my name is Juana Cruz, co-owner and administrator at Sue’s Prep Group Family Daycare in New Rochelle, NY. I am also a Registered Elementary School Nurse in the district of New Rochelle. I graduated from Helene Fuld School of Nursing in 2014. Prior to my career in the healthcare industry, I have always wanted to own a daycare. After having my youngest of five children, I decided that my daughter would benefit from all the wonderful opportunities a daycare environment would provide her.
